For many, gaming is a way of life. It's not unusual for many expert gamers to spend 30 hours a week or more playing their favorite titles.
Spend enough time in the gaming world, though, and there's a pretty good chance you'll get curious about the inner workings of those games. In fact, many of the world's most popular online games were designed by people who caught the designing bug by playing games.
And the skills required to be a game designer are applicable to a host of other creative endeavors, including video production, website design, photography editing and more.
But as with any task, the job of creating outstanding, engaging content requires having the right tools. The same devices that serve as the centerpiece of a gaming command center can do double duty as a platform for creating outstanding content.
Not any machine will do, however. Rising to the elite ranks of top gamers and designing powerful content requires the best in processing power and graphics rendering. Lenovo stands ready to meet those requirements with a vast selection of gaming laptops and desktops.
A standout in Lenovo's Legion line of gaming machines, the Legion C530 Mini Gaming PC offers tower-like gaming performance in a small footprint, with 9th Gen processing for lightning-fast speed, fast launching and smoother gameplay. Graphics options include up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics, the most advanced GPU architecture ever created for incredible realism and performance in the latest games.
Because sound you can feel is just as important as eye-catching visuals, the C530 includes Dolby Atmos® for an amazing audio experience that simulates a 3D experience. To keep the action cool even in the heat of battle, it features a dual-channel thermal system that independently cools the CPU and GPU.
Of course, expert gamers like to tweak their rig. The C530 features a one-press, tool-free upgrade system for ease of access, all in a portable case that features a 100% transparent top panel with integrated red system lighting that's sure to impress your competitors.
For those who desire a bit extra in power, Lenovo's Legion C730 Mini Gaming Cube offers those same features and more, with the option for PCIe SSD storage, 32 GB DDR4 2666MHz and more for up to 4K gaming beyond 60 frames per second (fps). It also includes a host of ports on both the front and back for easy connection of peripherals.
In addition, all of Lenovo's Legion machines are preloaded with Windows 10 for the ultimate gaming experience. The Game Mode on a Windows 10 gaming computer prioritizes processor and graphics card resources to your game while DirectX 12, an integral part of Windows 10, produces higher frame rates and reduced latency for breathtaking graphics. You can play in 4K resolution on Windows 10 for the clearest, most realistic display possible. The Xbox applets let you play Xbox One games on your Windows 10 gaming PC, while the Game DVR feature lets you record your greatest gaming moves and share them with your friends.
